of the united states. the combined population of this country is roughly 21% of the total population of the united states, but that conglomeration of states is who gets to pick our next president. which means the equivalent of a country the size of france is deciding who the president is of a country the size of us. that little france-sized country gets tons and tons of attention now, to the point where even smallish population centers within this tiny bollous of states get lavish attention from the candidates. they even end up being the subjects of the candidates' flattering word play. >> as i was coming in, i got to meet the principal and the superintendent and i was saying, i stopped on the way down at a diner, had some breakfast, and someone said to me, ohioan said, where you coming from? and i said, dayton. they said, where you going? i said, marion. he said, i read in the paper, you said you love ohio. and that must be true, you've gone from dayton, ohio, to marrying ohio. i said, i never thought of it that way, i didn't think i was marrying y'all, but it's great to be here. it

up. >> we're going to do it. ohio's going to elect me the next president of the united states. >> all the interest in competing in ohio, the desperate need to win the election in ohio, the dualing rallies and the ground games and all of that. all of that comes from the context of a big surprising decision in ohio this afternoon, about how the election is going to be run there this year. back in 2004, the night that the democratic ticket decided not to concede the race on election night because they were waiting on those results from ohio, part of what was happening in ohio in '04 was this. these horrendous epic lines for ohio voters. they waited ten hours and more in ohio in 2004 to cast a vote. especially in precincts used heavily by african-americans and college students. the polls were not ready for everyone who wanted to vote. for voters likely to vote democratic, casting a ballot meant waiting all day and into the night in hallways and in the rain. just waiting and waiting and waiting, if you decided to stick it out. maybe you didn't. or maybe you couldn't decide to stick it out
it to the supreme court of the united states with 28 days left before the election and meanwhile leaving the whole state's voting rules hanging. as ohio hits its voter registration deadline today and so many other states as well, what we know about how the parties have done on voter registration in the swing states opens a real interesting window into how the two parties are contesting the important states. this is a matter not just of national but of international importance. you can tell because the guardian newspaper from the uk has published a deep look into. swing state voter registration numbers this past week. you can see their headline here. democrats struggle to repeat 2008 voter surge despite registration push. in swing state florida where republicans pass new rules making it harder to register people to vote before those got blocked by the courts, they were in place for a long time, and you can see e the results. new democratic registrations are a quarter of what they were in '08. republicans in florida have registered about as many as the last time. in s
, the united states senator from massachusetts, scott brown. >> the man who introduced scott brown at his victory party was his dear friend and political ally mitt romney. these days if you went by massachusetts politics, if you only had massachusetts media fed into your home, you'd have no idea that the same guy was running for president. today was the second debate between scott brown and elizabeth warren. two things you'll remember in the first debate. the first the vee mans he attacked elizabeth warren on the basis of race in the first debate saying he could tell by looking at the law professor that she wasn't really native american. that was followed up by two scott brown tv ads attacking elizabeth warren on the basis of race. it was also followed by a bunch of scott brown staffers mocking native americans with fake war whoops and tomahawk chops. tonight he addressed the same controversy and kept arguing that race is relevant and a decision the voters have to make. he still did not apologize for staffers making fun of native americans even though the cherokee tribe chief asked him to
of the united states facing off against some non-president who wants their job. that only happens once per president. and these are the only times that has happened on tv in our nation's history. that's it. and this is the situation that president obama found himself in last night. it's only happened six other times in american history. so how did he do in historical context? there isn't that much historical context, right? like, this is a very knowable thing. honestly, that first one, that first one in 1976 where incumbent president gerald ford faced off against challenger jimmy carter, honestly, this one shouldn't even really count as part of the context like the rest of them because this one was almost too unusual. in terms of the reaction from that first debate, you want to know who won that debate? well, watch. >> good evening. here's what did it. a capacitor. a tiny electronic component costing less than $1. a capacitor blew out last night in an amplifier abc was using to feed the pool side to all the networks, plunging president ford and jimmy carter into unaccustomed silence and ir

6 million customers were left in pitch black. the swath of the eastern united states totally blacked out over the course of one day. and at this hour, more than 6 million electricity customers remain without power in the east. when they say this is the largest storm to have ever hit the east coast of the united states, the word largest in that phrase actually just means the physical area that is covered by this storm, which you can see in the fact we had outages from virginia to maine. but in terms of the direct hit of this storm, part of what makes this a storm of national significance is that when it came ashore, it hit the most populated place in our country. it's not just new york media dismor fee ya. this is the most densely p populated area. new jersey's population is greater than the population of maine, new hampshire, montana, nebraska, north dakota, south dakota, and wyoming combined. all in a state that's significantly smaller than even just new hampshire alone. the new york metro area has a population of over 22 million. when new york city evacuated just these areas in the
. >> do you feel like the united states' turn with the election of barack obama toward a more respectfully multilateralist approach to international affairs is a substantive change, and has it had any unintended consequences? >> i think it is a substantive change which was appreciated by the world. the rest of the world understands that you have a powerful u.s. which was ready to work with other countries, which is ready to listen, ready to talk and ready to put his views across but open. and that change i think was very good for the u.s. obviously there are those who would object to that sort as a sea of u.s. power, but the rest of the world appreciated the new mood. >> you write at the very beginning of the book that in your years as secretary general, i mean, you write generally about the challenge of the united nations in an era of american dominance, right? in your years of secretary general you found yourself playing the role of a global interpreter explaining the united states to the world and the world to the united states. what are the things that american government and the ameri
and infiltration or getting to the -- it's not funny, jack. you're talking about the president of the united states playing with the bureau of labor sticks numbers. this is nixon stuff. jack, do you want to take back the charge that there was corruption here? >> no i don't want to take back one word in that tweet. you don't think it's coincidental that we've got the biggest surge since 1983 and in the jobs surge? come on, chris. >> do you mean it's a coincidence or do you mean you have evidence that there was corruption here in these numbers? >> i have no evidence of corruption. none whatsoever. >> okay. so these chicago guys had nothing to do with number coming out today. >> i don't know that. >> i just heard from jack welch with respect i guess was about ten minutes of absolute nonsense with no grounding in what the bureau of labor statistics actually does. >> joining us now is jared bernstein who you just saw there responding to jack welch on "hardball" today. he is a senior fellow at the budget and policy priorities and msnbc and cnbc contributor. thank you for being here. i was absolutely rive
